FAST-GROWING SHADE TREE WITH AMAZING FALL COLOR

The Autumn Blaze Maple tree is an improved hybrid with an exceptional, long-lasting orange-red fall color, a uniform branching habit, and a fast growth rate.

This maple cultivar lives up to its name with its blazing red and glowing orange fall foliage that lasts all autumn long!

Leaves emerge in the spring with a reddish tint and turn dark green in the summer. During the shorter days of fall, the leaves turn on a brilliant shade of orange and brilliant red that gives the Autumn Blaze maple tree its name. Leaves are up to 5 inches long.

The Acer rubrum tree maintains a good central form and has wider angles than the silver maple, making it better adapted to areas with either ice or snow.

Our tree arrived in good shape and so far is doing ok in this extreme heat. I was skeptical to buy a live tree online, but the service was great and I would highly recommend Perfect Plants.

The rest of my order was great with beautiful plants...except for this maple tree... not impressed. I ordered the 5 gallon size & pretty much got a stick with one branch coming off one side..for the price I would have expected more :(
